Design4Kids works with Fotokids to provide opportunities for seasoned professionals to make real differences in the lives of talented youth during powerful week-long experiences. Students learn to solve problems, while working together in teams, within a short period of time.
With a charitable organization as their client, and seasoned professionals as mentors, students function as like an agency to develop creative solutions to the client’s stated communication needs. They get one week to interview, write, design, produce, and present a draft communication piece for their client’s consideration.
“You get wrapped up in the stress of daily life; it was good to step back and remember that there are bigger, more important things out there.”
–L. Currie, Austin, Texas — Volunteer
Volunteer mentors come from across the industry and around the world. Designers, marketing managers, ad agency executives, photographers, fine artists, and pre-press professionals have all participated in our workshops and made lasting connections. It’s hard not to form bonds after sharing the Design4Kids experience.
“I consider myself extremely lucky to have been in the company of so many great persons.”
